University of Manchester
The Tyndall Centre at the University of Manchester is based in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering and connects closely with colleagues across the University including in the Manchester Business School and the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences.
Tyndall Manchester’s key areas of research focus on analysing options for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions, including: emissions pathways and energy system scenarios work at a range of scales, stakeholder perceptions of mitigation solutions including marine renewables and carbon capture and storage, cutting emissions from international transport (aviation and shipping), biomass and biofuels, personal transport policy, community energy finance, energy storage and the water-energy-food nexus. Tyndall Manchester conducts discrete engineering, scientific and social science research, and synthesises findings to provide an integrated system-level understanding of climate change. This combination of specialised and integrated research has contributed to Tyndall Manchester becoming a valuable resource to the business and policy communities, with Centre researchers regularly requested to contribute to high-level policy debates across all spatial scales, from local and regional through to national and global.
